The songs from the Family of Mine CD were written about, and for, family members (or for friends who have been part of my extended family). There is one exception - the song Dead End Road is purely autobiographical - at least it represented how I felt back in 1972 (when it was written). For the most part, the songs on the CD were written after 1997 (when the music muse returned). There are other family related songs (from the late 60's and early 70's), like Wandering Minstrels, which are not included on this CD. They are included on the CD release called Before. The songs from the Before CD were written and recorded prior to 1972. It was a different time, that's for sure, but I wanted to make some of the music I wrote back then available today. In the last few years, I've expanded my song writing in two ways --- putting music to poetry that others have written, or in the case of Buckaroozer, putting words to another persons music. This has been a creatively enriching process and I'd recommend it to other artists. In today's world, it seems like everyone is a singer-songwriter with a CD and a web site. So, let me add to the mix and offer my singer-songwriter CD's to you. I hope you enjoy the music!
